[Review] Chuck Norris Facts for Siri - Random Chuck Norris Facts
If you’re a Chuck Norris fan and you also happen to be a proud owner of a Siri-capable iOS device, then you may enjoy this new AssistantExtensions add-on, which will give Siri the ability to spit out random facts about Chuck Norris every time you say his name. The add-on is called Chuck Norris Facts for ChatBot/Siri by iOS developer iPodHacks142 and it is currently available for free in the Cydia store today.
Chuck Norris Facts for Siri works the same way iJokes for Siri works, by using AssistantExtensions’ framework for allowing Siri to provide an arbitrary conversation outside of Apple’s control. The chatty Siri is enabled by saying, “Let’s chat” after you have installed AssistantExtensions. After you have enabled chatty Siri, you can say, “Chuck Norris” and a random, humorous (obviously fictional) fact about Chuck Norris will appear on your screen.
The developer states from the Cydia description that he will be adding more random Chuck Norris facts in the future with an update for the add-on. For now, there is a great number of facts to share a laugh about and keep you busy for a while.
The add-on is not useful by any means and was created with entertainment value in mind. It will not slow Siri down if you install it, however loading up the chatty Siri interface can take about a minute or so, which is normal. Chuck Norris Facts for Siri works with Spire as well as the iPhone 4S and has no options to configure. After you install it, you can start playing with it immediately. It's free to check it out and see if it makes you laugh.
Name: Chuck Norris Facts for ChatBot/Siri
Requirements: iOS 5, Siri/Spire

The only Chuck Norris fact you need to know these days is that Chuck Norris is responsible for ruining Expendables 2 by forcing it to become PG-13.

Other than it not working ("I'm busy, please wait a few seconds...", "Ask me another question.", "I do not understand", etc.) even after reinstalling and a reboot, it is a wonderful add-on. Maybe 1.0.2 will work...

This tweak is not Chuck Norris approved! Don't upset his incontinence! True fact: There's a shart with every rep on his total gym
